        That would be great! I’ve been converting the current lunch plan as much as possible to a paleo friendly plan, but having one ready to go would be even quicker!

    Tiny bit confused here – aren’t deli-style or lunch meats heavily processed and doesn’t that conflict with the paelo plan and clean eating in general? Please let me know if I’m wrong, but I was under the impression that paleo diets don’t just consist of meat, seafood, fruit, nuts, veggies, etc. but that it embraces those categories in their most natural forms including unprocessed, wild (not farm raised), grass fed, etc, etc.

      Tori, you are absolutely right! Deli meats are processed and often loaded with preservatives. This recipe works well with organic cold cuts, though. More expensive that way, but truer to Paleo.

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I have been on paleo diet f for a few months now, and I completely understand why deli meat is included in the recipe. Sometimes, we have to deal with how to adhere to paleo while still keeping track of our budget. Unprocessed food is much more expensive than conventional ones such as deli meat, but practicality wise, this is still a better alternative, if we want to stick to the paleo principle of no-grains, low carb diet.
